Facebook announced a new action to thwart a network of slotxo download android hackers in China that took advantage of the platform to compromise its goals in the Uighur community.The group, known as "Earth Empusa", "Evil Eye" or "Poison Carp", is targeted at about 500 people on Facebook, including individuals living abroad in the United States, Turkey, Syria, Australia and Canada. Through fake accounts on Facebook, the hackers posed as activists, journalists and other sympathetic individuals to target compromised websites other than Facebook.


Facebook's cyber security and moderation team began seeing the event in 2020 and opted to disclose the threat to the public in order to maximize the impact on the hacking group, which has proven to be sensitive to public disclosure in former Although Facebook says social engineering efforts on the platform are "a mystery", most of the hacking group's efforts have taken place elsewhere online. They focus on efforts to reach the target's devices with attacks on leaks and similar domains,


as well as a fake Android app store offering prayer apps and Uyghur-themed keyboard downloads.When downloading those fake apps, they infect them using two different strains of Android trojan malware: ActionSpy and PluginPhantom.On iOS devices, hackers have exploited a malware known as Insomnia.While hackers are targeting a small number of users compared to what the company sees in a disinformation operation, Facebook stresses that a small, well-selected audience could have a big impact. "You can imagine surveillance, you can imagine a number of consequences," said Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook's head of security policy.


The Uighurs, a predominantly Muslim minority in China, continue to face brutal repression from the Chinese government, including being forced into labor camps in the country's Xinjiang province.Facebook declined to link the observations with the Chinese government, saying it was in line with the broader security community to make those decisions when there was no technical indicator to do so. The researchers believe the adjacent hacking campaign is an attempt by Beijing to expand surveillance of the suppressed community within the confines of China.
